Food is the universal language of love and symbol for life. Growing up I had always wrestled with food and thoughts of food in the areas of confidence and body image. Then My brother lost his tongue to cancer. Before his surgery he wanted to try all the flavors he could. So, we'd planned on trying Rabbit for Easter but by the time Easter came he was too sick. Since his death, food and it's metaphor for living a passionate life has taken on new meaning.
I became determined to live each day with passion.
CERTIFIED TRAINER & COACH
I love challenging my body to be the best it can be. I have always been that way even before I joined the military. In 2011 I got my Personal Training Certification from United States Sports Academy. I've been having fun putting together fun programs for fitness.
We're all teachers of something. I might just happen to enjoy it a lot more than some. I love preparing and speaking to groups and I'm really thankful people are willing to listen to me. For a talker, nothing is more exciting than a room full of eager listeners. Here's to passing knowledge on!
I took my final fitness test to graduate basic training on my fortieth birthday.
I have years of Human Resources and Training and Development experience but the country was going through economic downturn and I couldn't even get Dunkin' Donuts to hire me for a graveyard shift! The military was advertising a part- time Human Resources position and off to Basic Training I went.
BROADCAST & PHOTO JOURNALIST
In all my imaginations I never expected to become a trained military broadcast journalist. I graduated DINFOS (Defense Information School) and deployed to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. There I did wrote and produced radio news, video news packages and wrote two inspirational columns weekly.
